Here’s how Marly can save your business thousands of dollars. Every year.

Every dollar and every minute saved can significantly impact your business's bottom line.

Marly’s innovative self-watering planters save you plenty of both, and are quickly becoming a must-have tool for businesses across many different industries.  

We’ve created a planter that is built to last, ensures your plants don’t die, and allows you to create a space which makes employees and customers feel connected to your company. 

+ Your Marly purchase pays for itself within one season of use.

+ Over the course of one year, the benefits are priceless.

Below, we’ve broken down both the tangible savings which we’re confident can save your business thousands of dollars, as well as the numerous, and potentially priceless, benefits of having healthy plants in your workplace. 


A product built to save you money

We grew tired of having to replace cheap, poorly built planters every 3-4 months. 

So, we designed a highly durable, UV resistant, sustainably made product that can be used indoors and out, and is built to stand the test of time.

Whether you’re based in the desert or the city, you purchase your Marly planter once, and once only.

Healthy plants mean dollars saved 

Marly planters offer a hassle-free solution that keeps your space green. Marly’s self-watering feature allows plants to feed themselves via capillary action, regulating their water intake and reducing the need for frequent maintenance. 

So, if you’re an office manager who finds it hard to keep up with plant care, a hotel with busy maintenance teams, or an Airbnb host who’s not always at home, Marly takes the pressure off and ensures your flora is thriving. 

Fewer dead plants = less money spent on replacements. Simple.

Cut down on labor, cut down on costs. 

Time is money, as they say, and Marly could save you a huge amount of both. 

Marly’s self-watering planters only need to be refilled once per month. That’s less than 5 minutes, per planter, per month. 

Not only are you conserving water but you’re also saving your staff’s valuable time. 

They spend less time watering, less time replacing cheap broken planters, and less time swapping dead plants out for new ones.

The ongoing positive effects on your business could be priceless

Plants Increase Dwell Time

Incorporating healthy plants into your business environment can significantly increase dwell time, particularly in customer-facing areas like retail stores, cafes, and hotel lobbies. 

When customers feel comfortable and relaxed, they're more likely to spend extra time exploring your offerings, which can lead to increased sales. Longer dwell time often translates to higher spending per visit, enhancing your overall revenue without the need for aggressive sales tactics.

Biophilic Design Increases Perceived Value and Connection to a Brand

Biophilic design, which integrates natural elements into the built environment, can elevate the perceived value of your business. Customers and clients are drawn to spaces that feel vibrant and alive, fostering a stronger connection to your brand. 

A study by Kathleen L Wolf into the effects of plants in the retail environment found that shoppers valued products by an average of 9.2% more when they were sold in biophilic environments.

This connection can lead to increased customer loyalty and a willingness to pay premium prices for your products or services, ultimately boosting your profitability.

Increased Air Quality

Healthy plants naturally purify the air by absorbing toxins and releasing oxygen, which can lead to improved air quality in your workspace. 

Cleaner air reduces the incidence of respiratory issues and allergies among employees, decreasing the number of sick days taken. 

This not only maintains productivity levels but also reduces healthcare costs associated with employee absenteeism.

Reduce Noise

Plants can act as natural sound absorbers, helping to reduce noise levels in busy office environments. 

This creates a quieter, more focused workspace, which can enhance concentration and productivity. 

Lower noise levels can also improve customer experience, making your space more inviting and comfortable, which can lead to increased customer retention and positive reviews.

One of the most famous and successful car manufacturing companies in the world, Ferrari, have taken a green approach to supporting employee wellbeing, which includes allowing plants to soften factory noise.


Save Energy by Regulating Room Temperature

Plants can help regulate indoor temperatures by providing natural cooling through the process of transpiration. 

This can reduce the need for air conditioning during hot months and lower heating requirements in cooler periods. 

By optimizing your energy consumption, you can significantly cut down on utility bills, contributing to substantial cost savings over time.

Trend Towards Associating Sustainability with Good Business

The modern consumer is increasingly environmentally conscious and prefers to support businesses that demonstrate sustainable practices. 

By incorporating plants into your workspace, you signal a commitment to sustainability, which can enhance your brand's reputation and attract eco-minded customers. 

This positive association can differentiate you from competitors and drive customer preference, leading to increased sales and brand loyalty.

Happy Customers = More Sales, Stronger Brand Recognition, Better Reviews, and UGC Opportunities

A green, inviting space contributes to a positive customer experience. Happy customers are more likely to make repeat purchases, leave favorable reviews, and recommend your business to others. 

Additionally, aesthetically pleasing plant arrangements can serve as perfect backdrops for customer photos, generating user-generated content (UGC) on social media. 

This organic marketing can boost your online presence and attract new customers at no additional cost.

Increase Staff Productivity, Enhance Focus, Well-being, and Happiness

Healthy plants in the workplace can significantly boost employee morale and productivity. Exposure to greenery has been shown to reduce stress, enhance focus, and improve overall well-being. 

Happier employees are more efficient, produce higher-quality work, and take fewer sick days. This leads to lower staff turnover and recruitment costs, as employees are more likely to stay with a company that invests in their health. 

The cumulative effect is a more dynamic, productive, and cost-effective workforce.


Invest in a product that can be as valuable as any employee

More than a planter, Marly is a product that can save business owners, facilities teams, and property managers thousands of dollars PER YEAR. 

Beyond the up-front savings of purchasing durable, long-lasting planters versus cheap, poorly constructed alternatives, Marly also results in far less money (and time) spent on replacing dead plants with new ones. 

Healthy plants deliver priceless benefits to your business too.

By integrating healthy plants into your business environment, you not only create a more appealing and functional space but also unlock a multitude of financial and operational benefits. 

From increasing customer engagement to enhancing employee productivity, the investment in greenery pays off in both direct and indirect ways, making it a smart choice for any forward-thinking business.
